    Just wondering if a release date for the final two seasons for Mr. Show have been announced. I had heard Spring 2003 and that starts today.

    I dunno- since the fist set was done almost exclusively to capitalize on the release of RUN RONNIE RUN, i don't know if there is any additional attention pushing the next release.

    Which brings up another question...

    Why doesn't New Line (who I think holds the rights) just release Run Ronnie Run straight to video if it doesn't have faith in it.

    "Spring or Summer" according to this.

    Anyway, Warner has not announced anything on this yet. That's up-to-the-minute info.

    It never hurts to shelve something if you might make more money in the future. With David as the narrator voice for Oliver Beene (a big hyped show on fox), and with other cast members with big movie profiles (Jack Black for example)-- New Line might be banking on the fact that if they hold it, they might get more money to sell it off or release it...

    I think Vince is right on the money...

    We can at least hope that someday, RUN RONNIE RUN! might hit video with one of the minor players' faces blown up larger than Bob & David's. Were it my decision, I'd like to see Mary Lynn Rajskub become a breakout star. [​IMG]

    I did hear, however, that the film was recut late last year to attempt to get it released again. I went to a benefit show that featured almost everyone from Mr. Show, and I briefly met Mary Lynn, John Ennis and Brian Posehn afterwards. Ennis told me that he was out of the original cut of the film but was back in the "new" version...

    And if anyone disagrees, say so, but I think Oliver Beene is one of the worst things Fox has put on lately, discounting their ubiquitous slate of reality shows. David Cross' narration is the sole good thing about the show.

    I'm disappointed that it's not going to be seasons 3 and 4, mainly because I watched the first set in one night! Does anyone know how many episodes we can expect?

    I think season 3 was 10 episodes. So it will be the same as the 1&2 boxed set (There were 10 episodes total in season 1 and 2 as well, 4 in season 1 and 6 in season 2).

    So the season 3 discs should be exactly like season 1&2.

    Season 4 also 10 episodes- so expect 3 sets, each with 10 episodes.

    Either this is a huge prank or it's gone completely unnoticed until now...

    Surfing to http://www.ronniedobbs.com/ reveals that RUN RONNIE RUN is due to be released on DVD 9/16/03!

    Anyone else hear anything on this?

    Better than that, Derek - DVDFile now reports that Run Ronnie Run is coming to DVD August 4! And I would guess that Warner would capitalize on that by putting out the third season of Mr. Show around the same time.

    Finally, I get to see this movie! Everybody talks about it as if they've already seen it, even though it was never released. Let's hope there's no last minute decision to pull these titles...AGAIN!

    Alas, there probably won't be a commentary or many extras for RRR. We should be thankful it's coming out. To bad they didn't record any of their recent live shows. Maybe next tour they say.

    Yeah, I can't imagine they'll wait too long for seasons three and four as I believe the first set did pretty well. Is it me or does it seem like this show is more popular now than it was when it was on?

    RRR I've been expecting to go straight to dvd for a while. I know Bob and Dave are pretty sick of it and don't want to promote it or anything so a theatrical release is pretty much out. When I saw Mr. Show live, Dave called it a shit he and Bob took a while ago. With dvd, at least the studio can't recoup some of the money they're losing by everyone buying bootlegs.
